Jacksons extends line-up with Proper Yorkshire Muffins

first_imgJacksons Bakery has extended its range with the launch of Proper Yorkshire Muffins.The soft white muffins are described as being made with locally sourced Yorkshire butter and baked using dough that has been “slowly fermented for a deliciously-rich flavour”. They also contain dried rye sourdough. Rolling out exclusively to Waitrose now, they join the Jacksons baked goods range that includes bloomer loaves and rolls. The launch comes six months after another Waitrose-exclusive Jacksons roll-out, hot cross buns infused with tea.The muffins are also free of palm oil, as are all Jacksons’ products after the William Jackson Food Group business last year removed the ingredient from across its range.“We thought very carefully about how to broaden the Jacksons range, and with the focus well and truly on our Yorkshire roots our new muffins won’t disappoint with their generous size. They’re great filled with egg and bacon,” said Jacksons marketing manager Deborah Dyson.Last month it was revealed that Jacksons will supply Co-op with own-label bread after Allied failed to agree commercial terms with the retailer. Hull-based Jacksons will manufacture bread for the retailer from next spring, while distribution of the own-label products will be handled by Warburtons.last_img read more

Sterling misses Liverpool training

first_img Sterling, 20, has been the subject of two failed bids from Manchester City this summer, believed to have been worth up to £30million and £40million. The player, who has two years remaining on his contract at Anfield, rejected an offer of a new £100,000-per-week deal earlier this year. It is understood that Sterling spoke to manager Brendan Rodgers this week and informed him that he did not want to travel on the pre-season tour. Rodgers and his squad are due to fly out on Sunday ahead of their first friendly against a Thai All Stars side in Bangkok next Tuesday. Since reports of Sterling’s tour request emerged, a mobile phone number purportedly of the player’s has been posted online with disgruntled fans encouraged to use it to send abusive messages. The club have not commented on whether the number is genuine. The Sterling saga is becoming increasingly acrimonious with the player seemingly intent on forcing through a move. City have maintained a silence on the issue but it is claimed they could be preparing another bid of around £50million. Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes the way the whole affair is playing out could be causing long-lasting damage to Sterling’s standing. “He’s starting to get a reputation that could be hard to rid himself of in the future,” Carragher wrote on www.kicca.com. “Are Man City fans looking at the situation and thinking this could be us in a few years? “I think this situation will only make Liverpool more determined to get the fee they feel Raheem is worth rather than caving in to Raheem’s and Man City’s wishes.” Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling did not report for training on Wednesday citing illness, Press Association Sport understands. Press Associationcenter_img The development comes following reports that the unsettled England international requested not to participate in the club’s pre-season tour of the Far East and Australia. Liverpool began pre-season training this week but it is believed Sterling telephoned on Wednesday morning to say that he was unwell. The club have not commented on the situation. last_img read more
